For 16 years Dr. Jack Wolfson worked as a hospital cardiologist performing coronary angiograms and implanting pacemakers. Then he met his wife who is a chiropractor. By sharing the chiropractic philosophy with him, she eventually changed the way he viewed health, healing and how the body heals. He began changing the way he practiced and treated his cardiology patients.
He wrote an amazing book and Amazon best seller titled, “The Paleo Cardiologist – The Natural Way to Heart Health”, and travels the world with his wife Dr Heather Wolfson where they speak together about Paleo nutrition, lifestyle, heart health and chiropractic.
Dr Jack Wolfson now runs a very successful, holistic cardiology office in Phoenix Arizona called Wolfson Integrative Cardiology.
In this episode we discuss his philosophy on cardiovascular care, cholesterol, statin drugs, exercise and nutrition.
